Hope you had a fun New Year’s Eve and New Years Day. I am excited that it is 2021 and all the new opportunities we have this year. It would be hard for 2021 not to be way better than 2020. As many people know a lot of things can happen to a family in a short period of time.
Last year we saw COVID-19 mess up peoples lives in so many ways. For instance, some businesses had to shut down and some never reopened. Which caused a lot of people to lose their jobs and probably their only source of income to pay their bills. If they didn’t have an Emergency Fund then they are probably behind on their bills.
Some people that got COVID-19 had to be hospitalized and I am sure that ran them up some big hospital bills. I know my four hours in a hospital was expensive for us. Until the COVID-19 Vaccine is available to everyone I am sure more people will be hit with large hospital bills in 2021.
I don’t want to scare people about COVID-19 because I am talking about it. I am not a Medical Doctor or giving any Medical Advice to you. But it is a big Thing that is in the news and our world last year and will be this year probably. Seems like a lot of people have different views on it. The ones that are really afraid of getting it probably needs to find a way to never leave their house or have anyone ever over. We don’t live that way and most of our friends don’t live that way.
Some do and we just don’t see them. Such a small percentage of people live this way. I love the guys I golf with; they shared a bottle of Brandy the other day and shake hands. They are older than I am and have seen a lot of things over the years that was supposed to be dangerous to their lives. They choose to enjoy each day they are above ground. I am in that boat also. I have out lived my friends and cousins so far and not going to quit living due to COVID-19. I say leave Businesses open and let people choose to go shop them or not.
We just think it is funny how many cars are on the road. Darlene works in a Grocery store and they are busy with customers. We go to other retail shops and there parking lots are jammed full. Yet some people act like don’t get by me when you are shopping. I say they should just lock themselves up in their house and do home delivery then. They should just never live the house. They made the choice to go to the store, I didn’t for them.
Many people do not have enough money in their bank accounts to pay for a $1,000 car repair bill. I have worked with and talked with so many people that had less than $100 in their checking and savings account. Many had no retirement savings either. I have heard that one out of four people have no emergency savings fund.
We believe in having an Emergency fund for our family. We teach our boys to have at least six months of their total expenses in a savings account. We like to use a Brokerage Account for our Emergency Funds and we invest it in Stocks, Mutual Funds and EFTs. We know if we have to liquidate some funds to pay off an unexpected bill, we could with in about seven days at the most.
